Brief description of Tomorrow Never Ends

It's a love story with a twist and it's the first in a two book series.

Oma Imoni is the workaholic and intelligent young woman who runs her own Advertising/PR firm. Her desire is to grow the fledging agency into a successful one in the cutthroat advertising industry in the country.

However, she's not willing to compromise her standards for anything. Thus she lambasts a prospective client, Daniel, on a day of an important pitch, for daring to make her an indecent proposal of sex in exchange for the lucrative account of his company.

However, they are destined to be together and love happens to them eventually. But it's a doomed love as certain forces, including an old family feud, his family's choice of bride, threaten to destroy their relationship and happiness.

Enter a mysterious figure simply known as the Seer, a man reputed to have the abilities to fathom things the ordinary eye cannot, a kind of mystic.

He advises them to embark on a journey to their past to seek a solution. But can this save their love?


 Below is an excerpt from the book for your enjoyment:

      
                                                        ***
  
The soft light of the moon, which hung over the earth like a bloated ball, shone over the waves in their steady, eternal movement to the shore.

Their endless motion, ancient and timeless, had a music of their own that was beguiling.
A few steps saw Oma standing by the water's edge, so close, water lapped at her bare feet. 

She stood on the deserted beach, looking at the immense sea, feeling as if she was alone in the world. Oma softly inhaled the salty sea breeze, which left her feeling calm and clear- headed.

Then remembering something from her childhood, she picked some pebbles at her feet and began to toss them into the sea. These created little ripples which were soon swallowed up by the hungry waves.

"Calming," a voice said close to her.

She turned quickly to see Daniel standing by her. She wondered how long he had been standing there as she had not heard him walk up.

"Yes," she agreed. It was more than calming; it was magical. She wished she could stay there for a long time to rest from the hassles of city life which could be overwhelming at times.

"There're days I feel like letting go. Work, commitments, the business, everything. Leave it all behind and move here," said Daniel. 

She gazed up at him, his face inscrutable from the dark shadows cast by the moonlight.

"So, what's stopping you?" she queried.

"Responsibilities. There're just too many of them. Their grip's too strong," he stated with a sigh.

She could understand the feeling. Though her outfit was small, she had had to work extremely hard most times just to stay afloat, keep the business going. Imagine what it took to run a company as large as his.

Oma felt a faint stirring of sympathy for him, at the heavy burden on his shoulders.

Then he took her hand and said:

"Come. I want to show you something."

They walked along the beach in the opposite direction from the guest house and loud music.
A short distance away was an empty canoe lying forlornly on the beach. 

Daniel climbed in and holding out his hand, guided her inside.

They sat side by side on the small wooden platform that served as seats.

"Are we going fishing this night or what?" she said jocularly.

He laughed.

"It's too late for fishing. It's an abandoned fishing boat. I come here to chill sometimes and imagine myself rowing in it, far away into the sea, to a far away place, where nobody can reach me. No mobile phones, internet, nothing. Just me and the big, blue sea," he stated grandly.

"You really wish to get away from it all, don't you?" she observed. 

"The temptation is always there," he said. Then turning to her, he added softly: "Especially with you here with me, Oma."

As he spoke, he drew closer and closer till their faces were almost touching. Then she felt his cool fingers on her face, caressing, exploring as if striving to imprint her features in his palms.

Her heart began to beat rapidly, wondering if he kissed her like the other time, if she could resist him. She could not deny it anymore, she was deeply attracted to Daniel and being so close to him, with his hands on her face...

His mouth pressed lightly on hers, with his hand moving to the back of her head to draw her closer still. Sighing, Oma opened up to receive his kiss, which soon deepened into a passionate clinch which left them both shaken.

All was forgotten except the ecstasy of being in each other's arms, the wanting, the desire...

"Oma, what have you done to me?" he intoned as his mouth trailed down her chin to her neck.

"Daniel," Oma said softly, holding him tight, all the emotions she felt, all the feelings she had for him embedded in that one word.

  They were so engrossed in themselves, they failed to see the lone figure standing a few feet away observing them. 

Then he drew closer and spoke in a booming voice.

  'The broken thread of many moons past, will be renewed. But the red ones can't be found. 
  I see crisis, troubles ahead. Unless the red ones return to their place...'

  The voice startled Oma out of her dreamy state. She tried withdrawing from Daniel's arms but he held her tight to him.

"Don't move. Please," he said...
